^^ this is the hardest one yet. I'll mourn this one for many years, and really hope Chef Jonathan Gans stays in our market.

Bachelor Farmer must have been going under before all this. Their family is worth almost $2B. They could have saved it if they wanted to.

Still a shame.

Their family might be worth that much, but they personally certainly aren't.

Maybe things were tight already, but it also didn't seem like a place that could pivot to takeout all that easily (especially given the price point). Considering they have other businesses to keep going, and there's no time frame yet for when they can fully reopen, I'm not surprised they called it quits.

I knew a few people who worked there one of my friends said

"they told us a little... i guess unbeknownst to us they had been struggling to keep up even before the pandemic hit. now they say there’s just no way they could afford to reopen and stuff since everything will be different for a long time still."

I think it was a good time for them to close the Dayton brothers can afford to cut it loose and start a new concept when there market gets better unlike a lot of other business owners.

Does this include Marvel Bar? From the announcement it sounded like it might.

4 Bells has also closed, but there are conflicts on whether it's permanent or not:
